“Our Story” Exhibit To Receive Warm Welcome Reception in Provincetown

The Official Website of the
Plymouth 400

Plymouth 400, Inc.’s first educational and cultural exhibit “Our Story: Wampanoag History” is now open to the public at Pilgirm Monument and Provincetown Museum (PMPM) in Provincetown, Massachusetts where it will remain through June 2015. The first installment of the exhibition, which will expand with additional pieces of Wampanoag history leading up to 2020, is called “Captured: 1614” and it tells the little-known story of how Squanto was able to communicate with and help the Mayflower Pilgrims upon their arrival to Patuxet (now Plymouth, Massachusetts)
PMPM is celebrating the opening of this powerful exhibit with a private reception at the museum on May 28th (Check out this great feature about the event from Provincetown Magazine!). 
“One could say this gathering is centuries overdue!” says PMPM Executive Director John McDonagh in a press release.  “We are we are thrilled to host this historic event, and invite everyone to join us for authentic Wampanoag food catered by Sly Fox Den and Wampanoag chef Sherry Pocknett featuring the freshest of the spring harvest.”
“Our Story” was conceptualized, researched, and produced by the Indian Spiritual and Cultural Training Council Inc. and SmokeSygnals Marketing and Communications, led by Paula Peters. The exhibit received international media attention when it was unveiled at Plymouth Public Library in November 2014 from outlets like the New York Times and Public Radio International. Designed to travel throughout the region, “Our Story” will next be exhibited at Mashpee Powwow from July 3-5 and remain in Mashpee through early August before traveling to Aquinnah.
The PMPM reception for “Our Story” is currently sold out, but you can follow along as we post photos from the event on Facebook & Twitter!
